"Luigi Cattaneo" Anatomical Wax Collection

Presentation

During the 18th and 19th centuries, medical scientists began to shift their attention from the study of human anatomy to that of pathology, in order to understand the cause and development of certain anomalies. They used wax to make models of the cases studied. You can see a collection of wax models and preparations which were used to study the human body and its pathologies. Enjoy the precise details of these scientific, historical and artistic treasures.
